A Life Well Lived: Tribute to Johanna Alemann


Published 2013


Johanna Alemann is believed to be the first woman filmmaker, operating as a sole proprietor, to run an academic film company in North America. Her focus was mainly on art. She made twenty films for her company, Alemann Films, and passed away on November 12, 2012 at the age of 89.

This photo essay, made her friend Stewart Nestor, is a memorial to her. In 2013, it is anticipated that all of her films will be uploaded to the Academic Film Archive of North America collection at the Internet Archive. For more on Alemann, visit http://www.afana.org/alemann.htm
